Where do you want to eat Rich?

Where do you want to eat? This is a very common question that we all are asked everyday but to those of us who suffer from "Celiac" its frustrating and complicated.

The University of Chicago recommends re-testing 3 to six months after going gluten free and then annually. Most GIs wisely wait because although you can theoretically heal that fast, it takes TIME to master the gluten free diet. It can take up to a year or longer for antibodies to come down. A...

Just opened in Cincinnati, Oh: Ma and Pa's Gluten Free Cafe. Dedicated gluten-free restaurant. I had the pizza hoagie and onion rings last night. I forgot just how oily onion rings were. They sat in my stomach like concrete all night long but tasted great. Next time I'm getting the pizza or pulle...
